This collection of four Sherlock Holmes mysteries on CD audiobook and MP3 downloadable audiobook is perfect for any Holmes fan. Welsh actor Clive Merrison and English actor Michael Williams bring Holmes and his trusty sidekick Watson to life in this dramatisation made especially for BBC Radio 4.
In A Scandal in Bohemia we meet Holmes on a quest to find a rather compromising photograph. But when he finds the woman who has it, Holmes soon realises that she is more than a little reluctant to give it up. The second story of four in the collection is The Red-Headed League, in which Holmes attempts to solve the mystery of why a pawnbroker has copied an entire book of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Perhaps even more baffling is the bearing that the knees from a man’s pair of trousers has on the case!
The penultimate story is A Case of Identity, where greed and great detective work is all part of the plot. Mix in a little bit of romance and Holmes is soon on his way to work out why a wealthy city worker has mysteriously left his bride on their wedding day. In the final story in the collection, The Boscombe Valley Mystery is yet another splendid masterpiece with Holmes putting his grey cells to the test in an unusual and puzzling murder case. All four stories, ably brought to life on these audiobooks, are a clear demonstration of why Conan Doyle is still regarded as one of the greatest crime writers of all time.
